Feeling the feelings and not turning to food
Tuesday, June 01, 2021
Emotionally speaking I find a false comfort in food. Celebrations mean food. Feeding my children means food. Boredom, sadness, stress & unmanageable situations can lead to food. Most everything in life I can’t ultimately control so why do I think I can control my food on my own? I need to rely on tools to navigate through the grey areas of my life. I need to turn to a power greater than myself. That can mean God, that can mean others who have been put into my life to help me along my journey. I don’t have to isolate and white knuckle through my emotions.
